“It al­lowed us to ac­com­mo­date all our fam­ily and friends, have free­dom of de­sign, and cre­ate some­thing never be­fore seen in Mid­land.”

Two French doors adorned with green­ery and ivory blossoms led guests in­side the dra­matic tent, which was dec­o­rated with glis­ten­ing crys­tal chan­de­liers sus­pended over­head – along with a one-of-a-kind dis­play of vanilla flo­rals and ver­dure. Lush drap­ing en­veloped the op­u­lent set­ting, which show­cased round ta­bles dec­o­rated with one of three cen­ter­piece de­signs: a low, an­tique-gold vase filled with flow­ers in neu­tral hues; a tall, slen­der gilt vase with the same flo­ral va­ri­eties; and a tow­er­ing tree fea­tur­ing cas­cad­ing ama­ranth and bul­lion-painted trunks. At­ten­dees found their seats atop translu­cent acrylic chairs, and each place set­ting fea­tured cobalt glass­ware, gilt flat­ware, and a cir­cu­lar menu card fea­tur­ing the de­lec­ta­ble fare se­lec­tions in golden let­ter­ing. “The at­ten­tion to de­tail through­out the re­cep­tion truly blew me away,” af­firms Jered.

Through­out the evening, guests en­joyed the cou­ple’s sig­na­ture drink, the “Colorado Bull­dog” – the same cock­tail they had on their first date in Steam­boat. Later, slices were served from a tow­er­ing seven-layer con­fec­tion fea­tur­ing the cou­ple’s hand-painted mo­tif in an om­bré ef­fect and cas­cad­ing gold sugar roses, along with pizza wedges as a late-night snack. Mid­way through the cel­e­bra­tion, the bride sur­prised ev­ery­one by chang­ing into a cus­tom-made, A-line short dress with an over­sized bow in the back. She and her groom also emerged in LED light-up shoes, al­low­ing them to dance the night away with loved ones who had been given flats as well as glowing glasses, neck­laces, rings, and more. “We had peo­ple of all ages, from our friends to our grand­par­ents and ev­ery­one in be­tween, out on the dance floor for a full four hours,” il­lus­trates the groom.

The cou­ple was ab­so­lutely thrilled with how the day turned out. “It was such a spec­tac­u­lar night that Jered and I were so proud to be a part of,” says Kristin. Notes the groom: “The en­tire day was by far the best one of my life up to this point.”
